Previous Names: Murray Hill Theatre
The Murray Hill Theatre was opened in May 1910. It served Flushing’s Murray Hill district, which includes the Broadway station of the Long Island Rail Road’s Port Washington line. It was later renamed Ritz Theatre. The small cinema fell victim to the post-war recession and became an auto repair garage until 1923, when the owner of the Janice Theatre in downtown Flushing took over and converted it back into a cinema.
The latest movies opened at the Janice Theatre and then moved to the Ritz Theatre for a brief run. The Ritz Theatre closed permanently in 1927 due to fierce competition from the larger and more luxurious Roosevelt Theatre, which opened only seven blocks away in 1926.
